Finding things offensive is fine, but that offense is worth nothing in my eyes. Believe me I've found certain things offensive or just plain wrong, like the torture scene in GTA V, but fact is that developers have a right to put that content into their game. It comes under freedom of speech. People have a right to bitch about it as well. But when a minority of people try to twist people's arms to change something that they find offensive, and make no mistake it's always a minority of people that do this, is where I have a major problem.
In my view if you view games as art like so many people here, staff and general posters, do but you talk about being offended and make blog posts/articles/whatever to try to twist a developers arm to change you're a massive hypocrite. Your opinion is valueless on the subject, and all future subjects, because quite simply you don't have a fucking clue in my opinion.
Art is supposed to flourish, offensive or not. I'm quite sure that people in the past found some of the incredible works of art that we still have today offensive. Rock music was offensive. Rap music was and still is offensive. Movies can be offensive. But they absolutely must must MUST be allowed to exist as they are. If you don't like it then personally blacklist that artist/director/developer, but don't be a piece of shit about it and try to force them to change their original vision. Don't taint art with political bullshit.
Reason I think like this is I'm so jaded now. You see this same shit pop up all the time by people trying to sound holier than thou and it irks me in a way that few things can. So I guess I'm offended by it and I'm a hypocrite. Thing is though I can fucking admit it.
As Kent Brockman would say, that's my two cents.
